Talk:Sibghatullah Mojaddedi

Contents

Sibghatullah does not have a disambiguation pageEdit

Rather, a Sibghatullah search brings up only the Greater Church of Isreal. As Mojaddedi has a wealth of different spellings, it would be helpful if his first name directed here in some manner as well. Edris Qarghah 03:56, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

NPOV, request peer reviewEdit

It seems to me that the general tone of the article is somewhat celebrative and POV. I am no expert on the issue, however there is no single negative remark in the article, and I am a bit suspicious. Other things that would be nice to have:

  • Original spelling of the name in the Arabic alphabet;
  • Is that Al-Mojadeddi or just Mojadeddi? Is that equivalent in Afghan custom?

The name is just Mojadeddi, no Al. It would be not equivalent in Afghan custom, and is also not very common, more something you find in Arab countries.And by the way I find the article too celebrative, too. 82.135.14.201 06:12, 11 December 2005 (UTC)

  • Where did he get the title "professor"? Is that justified at all?

--Orzetto 09:16, 28 September 2005 (UTC)

I definately think that this article is biased. Though I don't know much about his actions, I am aware that there are people who do not revere him as this article does. Additionally, it's POV to say that his family is the most prestigious and religious. I think that this article is taken from a short biography of him written by one of his family members: http://www.afghan-web.com/bios/detail/mojaddidi_detail.html

---

I added a paragraph about his educational qualifications and experience as a Professor at Kabul University.

--

I also added a paragraph of Prof. Mojaddedi's descent from the Mujaddid Ahmad Sirhindi (to help explain the widely-regarded prestige of his family lineage within Afghanistan).

--

This article is giving most of the benefit of the doubt to Mr Mojaddedi. Among others, the article ultimately states that Mr Mujaddedi acted rightly in his reaction to Miss Joya's allegations because Miss Joya would have 'disrupted' the process of forming a government. I am certain that expelling a member of a group for speaking out is contrary to democratic values unless the allegations are competely incredible. Clearly, in this case, there is credible evidence that there are grounds for those allegations.

While the allegations made by Miss Joya are actually very credible and true, I believe that the 2003 Loya Jirga was not the wisest place to make those allegations. You have to think of the repercussions of causing chaos at a meeting where the government is about to be formed. In order for there to be any form of accountability of the war crimes committed by war lords, there must first be an established government. Disrupting the formation of a government at such a fragile time in Afghanistan was unwise. A5678 04:52, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

There was some vandalism done, albeit by someone who doesn't have good english grammar skills. I reverted the article back to the previous version. A5678 04:54, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

I cannot believe that the link to a biography leads you to a seven-page (!)-biography which is quite biased and not even giving any relyable dates... Very suspicious —Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.87.224.97 (talk) 17:01, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

Part about his Indian and English heritageEdit

I am fairly certain he does not have any English or Indian heritage so I removed that sentence.

A5678 10:54, 9 February 2006 (UTC)

Yes, you were right. He does not have either of those heritages. He is an Afghanistani of Arab ancestry. -- Behnam 09:09, 16 November 2007 (UTC)

I am not sure about Sibghatullah's English (!) heritage -- but I do know about his Indian heritage: he is descended from one Shaikh Ahmed Sirhindi (so named as he was based in the Indian Punjabi town of Sirhind). This man was an orthodox mullah during the reign of the Mughal emperor Akbar the Great, and gained fame (or notoriety) for rebelling against Akbar's "heresy" of founding his own religion. Ahmed Sirhindi claimed descent from Islam's third Caliph Umar Farooq, and was titled "Mujaddid Alf Sani" for his role against Akbar; hence the name "Mojaddedi". Mujaddid when roughly translated, means one who purifies and corrects aberrations/deviations (in Islam), bringing it back to the "true path". It was only in the 1890s that a branch of the Mojaddedi family migrated to Kabul, where they quickly ingratiated themselves with the royal family and the population. Others still reside in Sirhind, where they have considerable renown. The hypocrisy of these people is that they claim an orthodox role, whereas most members of this family at present are settled all over the Western world - leading very flashy lives that are not in accordance with their supposed creed.

In the end, I will dispute the assertion on this page that Sibghatullah Mojaddedi is an ETHNIC PASHTUN. He can be called an ethnic "Farsiwan"(Persian speaker), as his family - like all "upmarket" Afghans - converses in Persian at home. But they do have following among Pashtuns, and own a large amount of property in Pashtun areas. I am giving no references here, as I know all this because of my personal acquaintance with this man's family and children. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 110.39.148.197 (talk) 23:30, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

Support of death sentence for 23-year old Afghan who downloaded literature about women's rightsEdit

This might be added to the article: http://www.commondreams.org/archive/2008/01/31/6756/ Badagnani (talk) 17:04, 31 January 2008 (UTC)
